The world cannot continue to fail the millions of children left behind by the MDGs Opinion piece by UNICEF Representative to Cambodia, Rana Flowers
Nearly 15 years ago, the global community rallied behind eight goals in the hopes of building a better and more prosperous world. The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) set measurable targets and a 2015 deadline for achieving them.

What is UNICEF’s position on orphanages, group homes, or residential care for children, and on adoption of children for whom family- or extended family-based care is not an option?
Institutions are not - ever - a better environment for children than a loving family. The more we learn about the brain, the stronger the evidence that children should not be placed in institutions.

UNICEF Representative in Cambodia talks about the progress made in Cambodia as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child
All children have one thing in common: their rights. The right to life, health, education, protection and play are all fundamental children’s rights that were acknowledged for the first time on a global scale twenty-five years ago, with the CRC.
